The murder of Colorado beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey in 1996 is one of the most talked-about crimes of our time.
Now, almost 20 years on from her horrific murder, the case is undergoing a complete reinvestigation by some of the world’s leading experts (which we introduced and gave background to here) in a new two-part documentary series, The Case of JonBenét Ramsey.
Here are the most explosive revelations to emerge from Part One.

The 911 call
Following the discovery of a ransom note and her daughter missing from her bedroom, JonBenét's mother Patsy Ramsey - a retired beauty queen herself - called 911.
After reporting what had happened to the 911 operator, Patsy put the phone down, thinking she had hung up. The operator, however, stayed on the line and recorded a conversation in the background, which up until now had not been clearly deciphered.
The Ramsey family have always maintained that there were just four people in the house at the time of the murder - father John, mother Patsy, brother Bourke and JonBenét.

Listening to the recording using cutting-edge audio technology, case leaders Jim Clemente and Laura Richards were able to finally decipher the background conversation that the 911 operator had captured all those years ago.
First off was an adult male voice saying what sounded like, "we're not speaking to you."
Then came a woman saying what sounded like, "What did you do? Help me, Jesus."
Finally, the voice of what sounded like a young boy could be heard saying, "What did you find? "
